Because I have a dog like this too...

And he's sweet and pretty, but just not very smart.



This cracked me up.

Every time I look at that post, I die laughing. I have two dogs, both Italian Greyhounds, and one of them not only acts like that, but she kind of looks like Allie's picture, too (dark and skinny). I die.

Love the pic. My dog is a window licker. He can keep us occupied for hours with his slober show.

There was a horrible incident with a dog yesterday. I live in Chelsea (Manhattan) and I was walking to Bed Bath and Beyond. As I approached 6th Avenue, I saw this young girl (well, to me the 20s are young). She was shaking her dog's head with one hand and she had her other hand down his throat. Her own head was almost upside down over him she was so scared and involved in what she was doing. I ran over and I saw her pulling garbage in pieces out of his mouth, and she was screaming, "Open your mouth, spit it out."

All of a sudden, she pulled this raunchy long half eaten sort of sharp chicken bone out of his mouth. He had picked it up from the sidewalk with his tongue. She told me he had swallowed a piece and was choking so I said, "Let's go over to the the vet on 21st Street." She said he was OK.

OK. So if you have a dog with a long tongue, when you walk him please keep your eye ahead to see what might be in the path that could be a problem. She was pretty shaken up and just went home.

Oh, this makes me laugh. We have two dogs and one is LOUD. We call him the snarfer because he sneezes, he wheezes, he yaks and snorts and grunts and groans and there's no other way to say the noise: he SNARFS. You can hear him coming blocks away. He's my third Aussie Shephard and the only one who has ever been noisy at all. Go figure.

Suzie,

Intelligence is subjective.

Lee Nichols said...

Oh, looks so much like our old boxer who died 10 years ago and I still think about practically every day.

So cute! I saw that you are a part of the Debut Author Challenge! That is so amazing that you are supporting debut authors and I only recently found out that I am going to be one!!! I wanted to ask if you wouldn’t mind heading over to my blog and giving me your opinion. As a blogger turned author I would really appreciate it and the publisher is still giving out ARCs so you might have a chance at a free copy! Thank you and I hope you will stop by and check out The Thirteenth Chime!

Sincerely,
Emma Michaels

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
